Two of the mills can trace their roots to the West Virginia Paper Company (aka the West Virginia Pulp & Paper Company and later, Westvaco) that was established in 1888 by William Luke on 50 acres (202,000 m²) of land along the Potomac River in an area known as "West Piedmont" (now Luke, Maryland). The mill in Luke remains a major economic factor in the area and its impact straddles the river into Beryl and Piedmont in West Virginia.
In 2005, MeadWestvaco's Printing and Writing Paper business was sold to investment firm Cerberus Capital Management for about $2.3 billion to form NewPage Corporation. NewPage originally constituted 5 pulp and paper manufacturing in Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, and Ohio.
